The one most important reason I want to be on this journey is ...

I want to live a full life; adventure, love and above all happiness.

There are many "I want to" reasons on my journey. The one which sparked me was wanting to be a healthy example for my daughter.

There are many reasons why I want to lose weight. Sure, it would be great to like what you see in the mirror or in family vacation photos. It would also be great to be able to do a 5 or 10 k. The main reason for me is that I have four children. Two kids have disabilities. I want to be fit and healthy for them. I need to be at my best for as long as I can so that I can take care of them.

I am with everyone else, there are sooo many reasons! I went to Vegas in August, on the plane the seat belt wouldn't fit me, I was sooo embarrassed that I hid it behind me and put my purse on my lap so that no one would notice. I am going back in April and I am hoping the seat belt will fit me! Of course, I want to be healthy, play with my son with out having to sit down, and go out with my husband where we see friends from high school and not feel ashamed of how I have grown!
Great subject Penny!!

I, too, have many of the same reasons for losing weight. I want to be healthy, not have to worry about if I am going to fit on a ride at an amusement park, I want to be able to wear stylish, cute clothing, I want to have more confidence, oh the list goes on and on and on!

Oh Penny love this post. I am with Marilee on SO SO SO SO Many of her reasons in fact I could just go over to her blog and copy all of them.

I am going to scrapbook a page and for every pound I want to lose to get to goal I am going to give a reason as to why I want to lose.

By the way I have to come up with 110 reasons!

There are MANY vain reasons but the most important one is that I want to be healthy and live a long fulfilling life. I also want to LOVE the reflectoin that looks back at me in the mirror. I am learning through this journey and life occurences that I need to learn to love myself regardless of my weight.

OKAY, completely random but George Straight's song " I Cross My Heart" is playing on Pandora as I type this and it so has made my eyes swell up with tears, what the heck is wrong with me?

I want to get so much out of this that I don't know where to begin. I want health, I want ot be looked at because I look good not gross people out, I want to play with my kids and oh so much more. I love marilee's reasons to lose and am really thinking about starting my own reasons because when I want something to eat that is unhealthy I can never remember the reasons (mental block on purpose?) to not eat it.

Penny...you are singing my song with this one!! I want SO MANY things from this...I have blogged every day for the last 13 days..."Reasons to Lose". It is cathartic for me to get rid of old resentments. It is also helpful for me to have "mini-goals".

We all have our reasons for taking this adventure.
But what is the one thing you want out of it?


Is personal appearance?
How bout family, friends, & social life?
Just want to be healthy & fit?






Often it is about getting out of the endless loop of thinking and getting into action.
